Re: Hard-Talkchess-2020 set, final release

Give it a try, if you really didn't do so till now, have fun. Will do, thanks. This is for analysis of corr games, though. But it makes sense, because I was using Aggressiveness=200 as an alternative Stockfish back in the times of Stockfish 5 (before it was removed), so why not Contempt=100? That w...

Re: Hard-Talkchess-2020 set, final release

Contempt 100 is required to find the best moves? That's new :shock: To me it isn't. :) Of course, it's not required, it helps a little in most tactical postions for the side to move, if it's about game changing best moves for the side in advantage. And 100 (max. for most SFes) for both sides (analy...

Re: Hard-Talkchess-2020 set, final release

The attached file has my database analysis for the test set. I only have one different solution, and the difference is partial, because the problem has multiple solutions: 4r1k1/1r1np3/1pqp1ppB/p7/2b1P1PQ/2P2P2/P3B2R/3R2K1 w - - acd 51; acs 900; bm Bg5 Bg7 Bxc4+ Be3; c0 "Bg5 = 343, Bg7 = 170, Bxc4 ...

Re: Hard-Talkchess-2020 set, final release

Crystal 2019 is here not as good as Houdini Tac, but of course the second best engine. In some other testsuites it's better than Houdini. BTW when are engines tested at TCEC hardware 176 threads? My latest Crystal- compile at same hardware-TC as Houdini 6 T and the others I showed above, again 1 mi...

Re: Hard-Talkchess-2020 set, final release

Do you mean you used 8 best variations to analyze ? If yes, why did you do this ? Yes, and because I thought it would make SF find more solutions at same time- control. Did work well obviously, here's the result of the same Brainfish as before, but this time at single variant mode, with same hardwa...

Re: Hard-Talkchess-2020 set, final release

Each of the following groups essentially contain the same position.
